Can someone please take a look at overall how much taller it makes the Jeep?

The Safari size opening is about 2-15/16". The previous AEV Ram inlet fits right.

Don 't know what about the new Ram/Pre-filter as the diameter now seems bigger (4"?).

The new opening is bigger. I know Dave mentioned the new size and it was either 3 or 4 inches. If the old one was 3 then this one is 4".

I believe Dave said 4" so it meets currently available commercial filter products (i.e. big rigs?)

Question for AEV:

There were special instructions sent out with the original snorkel to make it possible to have interchangeable intakes. The new pre-filter is superior to both the old filter tops (ram-air and pre-filter), as it does a better job than the 1st gen pre-filter and is as tough as the ram-air. Might there be either a yet-to-be-released connection module to mate the new pre-filter to the 1st gen snorkel, or are there similar special DIY instructions that might include getting a muffle shop to make us a properly fluted intermediate piece to mate the new pre-filter on the 1st gen snorkel?

[quote=azbmack;46330]I would love to know if anyone has installed the Gen 2 snorkel with a Gobi roof rack. The pre-filter (from the pictures) looks like it would hit the rack. The Gen 2 looks like it hugs the A-pillar closer too. The "exact fit to the JK body contours" has me a little concerned it won

I'm courious how much more airflow this really gives over the gen 1. Is it worth switching to the gen 2?

you may use this to fit the new 4" pre-filter, but I'm not sure what the difference would be if we installed a 3" pre-filter instead (on the old snorkels),
as both the ram and the old lost-in-space robot-head pre-filters are both 3"

I recently installed the new snorkel on my 2012 but it seems the snorkel doesn't sit in the middle of the cut in my AEV hood, it almost touches the back of the cut and sits against the metal, I will try and take a picture whne I get home today if it stops raining... Anyone else have this problem?

It isn't like the positioning is adjustable since it bolts in...
